    Totem noun | to·tem | ?t?-t?m A Natural Installation by Vincent Pacheco

    Start Date: Friday 10/6/2017 — End Date: Saturday 11/4/2017
    Admission:Free

    A totem is a natural object assumed as the emblem of a group and serving as a reminder of ancestry. Artist Vincent Pacheco is a new settler, a non-native in an unfamiliar landscape, now living in the Tahoe National Forest. He creates narratives from excavated dead and broken trees, tree stumps, and other found objects from the Sierra mountain forest he inhabits to reveal the after-effects of logging, population growth, tourism, and climate change. Combining prose, parable, and fact, he activates the litany of experiences that shape his understanding of his adopted environs.

    Aggregate Space Gallery is pleased to host the work of Vincent Pacheco, UC Davis graduate and recipient of the ASG 2018 MFA Invitational Exhibition, as he plies experience as a medium to form a narrative of a place and the personal history that travels alongside it.

    Local performing artists get juiced on ASG works and respond!
    Curated by Jesse Hewit: jesse@aggregatespacegallery.org
    aggregatesspacegallery.org/FrictionFunction

    Aggregate Space Gallery is pleased to announce an exciting new program series made possible by a generous grant from the Kenneth Rainin Foundation’s New & Experimental Works Program (NEW)!the Friction/Function Performance Series Launched August 2017.

    Friction/Function is a multidisciplinary collaboration between ASG and dance artist and curator Jesse Hewit that presents innovative performance works in conjunction with ASG exhibitions. The Friction/Function Performance Series invites performing artists to study and respond to the exhibition of an artist working in another discipline, ultimately creating and presenting a live performance in the exhibition space. ASG and Hewit feel the need for such cross-pollination is especially urgent in today’s political climate; it is imperative that we make space for invigorating and expansive conversations about where we’re at, what needs to be done, and what we can do. The viability of such conversations depends on rigorous collaborations.

    Working closely with Hewit, who will curate the series, ASG will produce an initial run of the program between August 2017 and July 2018, hosting eight artists working in different modes of performance.
